No matter which side you’re on here, you’re on the same side. Why? Because America.
Whether you’re a fan of the Viper T/A or the Chevy Z06, both cars are great examples of how America can do things for right around $100,000 that the rest of the world doesn’t even attempt for much less than twice that much cash.
Here, you’ll see both cars run the 1/4-mile with blisteringly quick ETs for factory-stock street machines, both in excess of 122 mph through the traps. On stock tires. And the Z06 is a manual—and bogs the launch a bit.
Which wins? They both do. Although as with any race, there is an actual winner, too.
